Earl Sweatshirt Samiyam Amoeba Music What's In My Bag?

Rapper Earl Sweatshirt and producer Samiyam are always looking for the answers to life's more profound questions like, "What's a hideously deformed creature of superhuman size and strength to do after he's eliminated crime from his hometown?" Hopefully they'll find the answer while watching The Toxic Avenger III: The Last Temptation of Toxie, Troma Entertainment's third installment in their cult-classic series. The pair picked up a pile of Troma DVDs, including such think pieces as Mad Cow, Viral Assassins, and Redneck Zombies, as well as a healthy and eclectic stack of records on their recent visit to Amoeba Hollywood. All the while the two gave out some good sampling tips and Ethiopian food recommendations.

After the release of Doris, he returned in 2015 with his sophomore LP, I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside: An Album by Earl Sweatshirt

New "What's in My Bag?" Episode with The Arcs

The Arcs What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

"For some reason it was difficult to get twelve people from Thailand to open for us for nothing," says The Arcs' singer/guitarist Dan Auerbach about Khun Narin Electric Phin Band. Apparently Auerbach was hoping to get the Thai psychedelic ensemble, who makes their own instruments, on board as an opening act to no avail. You may already know Auerbach from his other band The Black Keys, or from his 2009 solo record, Keep It Hid. Along with fellow Arcs members Leon Michels (Menahan Street Band), Nick Movshon (Menahan Street Band), Homer Steinweiss (Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings), and Richard Swift (The Shins), he's had a very busy year touring in support of their debut album, Yours, Dreamily. Avid record collectors themselves, The Arcs recently mined Amoeba Hollywood's varied genre sections and came out with an impressive and healthy score.

New "What's in My Bag?" Episode with Sebastian Bach

Sebastian Bach What's In My Bag at Amoeba Hollywood

KISS super fan, heavy metal legend, and vinyl collector Sebastian Bach recently came shopping at his happy place (i.e. Amoeba Hollywood) and schooled us on things like first pressings and Japanese "obi" editions of the band's discography. "The very first pressing of KISS Alive! was mastered by a guy named Robert Ludwig, and you can only tell if you look at the run-out in the grooves. It's the only one I don't have," says Bach as he opens one in the KISS vinyl section. Turns out Mr. Bach's expertise extends to many other artists, including Rush and Neil Young. This lesson was courtesy of a very personal, whirlwind tour of Bach's typical shopping route here at Amoeba and, boy, it did not disappoint!

Sebastian Bach 18 and Life on Skid Row

Sebastian Bach rose to prominence as the frontman of Skid Row. He performed with the group from 1987-1996, later forming the group The Last Hard Men with members of The Smashing Pumpkins, The Frogs, and The Breeders.

A year later he began performing in Broadway shows, making his debut in Jekyll & Hyde and later signing on for The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Jesus Christ Superstar.
